Joey Logano won his first Nationwide Series race of the year at the Kentucky Speedway Saturday night. But by winning the Meijer 300, Logano made history! He was the first driver in NASCAR history to win 3 races in a row at the same track, and all the wins came from his pole qualifying position.
The victory was the seventh of Logano’s career in the series. It was his third from the pole at Kentucky.
It came a weekend after he was involved in a post-race brouhaha with Kevin Harvick after the Sprint cup race at Pocono.
Logano, who won five times a year ago in Nationwide, held off Carl Edwards to get the victory.
“Feels really good,” Edwards, who won five races last year but none so far this year, said. After Edwards, points leader Brad Keselowski was third.
The Harvick-Logano incident has ignited T-shirt sales in the Kevin/Delana Harvick camp. She has taken Logano’s dig at her “wearing the firesuit in the family”, and turned it into a marketable sales item for the Kevin Harvick foundation! Now that is a lady who not only wars the firesuit but also knows how to turn a dig into money!
What is your take on the Harvick-Logano fracas?
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
